The first picture is my Bearded Dragon's home. It is 6'x2'x2' (It's a little spoiled), and completely WIFI enabled (Okay I'm spoiled).

Next is the giant native millipede tank (40 Gallon Breeder).

The red one is native to AZ, and the large grey one is from Florida. Not pictured but present are also Texas Gold.

We used to have Dart Frogs, but let a guy drop one fruit fly culture in the living room.

So the primary food is the substrate. The substrate is 50% Oak leaves, 25% Coco Fiber, 25% sand. It is augmented with Hamster bedding as it breaks down quickly.

Then they get the same treats as my Shrimp, Snails - Zucchini, Carrots, Cukes, etc.

These guys get about 4-6" long and as thick as your thumb.

What’s the deal with millipedes, People say they die easy while trying to molt? You have to feed them oak leaves for that purpose or something if I recall?

Mine molt fine. They need moisture and a good substrate. A big mistake I see is people putting them in Coco Fiber and thinking they will feed them enough. If they can't live and eat in a healthy substrate, then then have problems.
